Gonzalo Lebrija — As Time Goes By
The work of renowned Guadalajaran artist Gonzalo Lebrija addresses notions of power, bureaucracy and hypocrisy in Mexican society and, by association, the Western world.
Creating photographs and installations imbued with both humour and a probing insistence to unveil the faults of seemingly unfaltering political structures, Lebrija invites us to observe Armani-clad businessmen riding bulls, or lawyers participating in a paper-aeroplane competition from Guadalajara’s tallest office block. By undermining steadfast political and business hierarchies, Lebrija questions the true pecking order of modern society.
In his first major monograph, 80 full-colour illustrations of the artist’s multifarious work sit alongside texts by poets, artists and architects specially commissioned by Lebrija.
